*The title of this article reminds me of what I say to myself and what I've shared with others during conversations.

"This life is not about us."  

If one understands that this life is not about him/her or that this life is not about me, then one can get through just about anything if not everything.

The title of this article also reminds me of what we say and believe as Muslims -- Al hamdulillah.

"I thank Allah for whatever He has given or denied me; whatever I perceive as an addition to my life or whatever I consider lacking in my life are only human perceptions tempting me away from my subordinate and subservient status to Allah." - On meaning of Al hamdulillah; The Ascendant Qur'an: Realigning Man to the Divine Power Culture (Tafsir) Vol. I; Imam Asi

Hi Najwa,

Thanks for sharing your voice, post and link. I agree that when we think this, it puts our lives into a different perspective.

Hope you're having a good day!

You are welcome. Thank you. I am having a good day so far. The sun is shining and the temperature is perfect where I am here in Germany. Ich bin gl├╝cklich!/I am happy! Hopefully you are having a good day too!

Oh what a beautiful morning.|Oh what a beautiful day.|I have a beautiful feeling.|Everything's going my way.

My father would sing a song he composed to my siblings and I when we were young children and part of his song (above) just came to mind. Thinking of his song and him singing it to us then makes me smile now.
